About this location

Due to a late cancellation we have been offered the opportunity to investigate the magnificent Explosion Museum this weekend.

The Museum of Naval Firepower, based within 18th century buildings at the Royal Navy's former armaments depot of Priddy's Hard, in Gosport.

Since its completion in 1756, this depot has played an active part in conflicts from the Napoleonic Wars right through to the Falklands War. Just imagine the experiences of the thousands who worked (and died) in such a dangerous environment.

What caused the explosion which killed 27 people ? To whom do the ghostly footsteps belong and why is this person knocking on the door ? What causes a heavy chain to swing for no apparent reason and is the reported unnatural gust of wind really the spirit of a labourer who died at the scene ? Will we witness the manifestation of Edward George McBride on the exact same spot where he was killed nearly 90 years ago ?

So many reported paranormal experiences, which surely merits further investigation. We'd love you to join us for what is certain to be a fabulous Ghost Hunt night

We will have the pleasure of exploring this historical site away from the usual visiting crowds the only company we may have is from the past !
